Tempest in an imaginary Chamberpot

The Hairpin publishes a (satirical) article entitled Chamberpots: A Resurgence? about a pair of Park Slope hipsters and their embrace of chamber pots and cheap rent. The article is picked up by Curbed, MSN Money, and the Daily Mail, all of whom miss the satire, and a Slate blogger uses the article to comment on the lack of affordable housing in Brooklyn.

"In conclusion, don't kill yourself, because suicide is super gay."

Park Slope lesbians Ingrid and Desiree are "homophobic, superficial and ultimately, perfect for one another." In this video series the couple considers whether all lesbians can be classified as tops or bottoms, if transmen are hipper than bisexuals, and if the It Gets Better Project sends the wrong message about how to survive high school as a gay teen.

65 cents in nickels and dimes

15 photographs taken at the scene of the 1960 Park Slope, Brooklyn passenger plane collision. These are horrifying, view with caution. Previously. Sorry it had to be from the Daily Mail, folks.

FULL NAME: your african-american friends | LOCATION: probably can't stand you

A new nightclub is opening in Park Slope, Brooklyn. It's call Prime 6 and despite opposition from local Community Board 6 it had already acquired a 3 story space not far from the Atlantic Yard projects as well as the requisite liquor licenses from the State Liquor Authority. The nightclub's owner promises that the club will cater to a Park Slope clientele but locals aren't convinced. Prime 6's Myspace and Facebook pages (now both deleted) featured "suggestively posed women" and a link to the “Prime 6 mixed CD,” created by hip hop artist DJ Big Jeff, with songs titles including “Motha F–ka, I’m Ill” and “New Money.” CB6 has officially stated that it will reconsider its next move, however local CB6 member Jennifer McMillen has distributed a virtual petition seeking to persuade the nightclub to "Embrace Indie Music" instead of hip-hop.

Pocket Change

"Reading 'Our tribute to a brave little boy,' you will also find 65 cents in nickels and dimes melded to the plaque." Some mismatched bricks on an unremarkable building in Park Slope and a plaque in a hospital are the clues to an astonishing story of two airplanes, a mid-air crash, and a little boy traveling alone.

Gloria Trembicky is a bad landlord

Gloria Trembicky is a bad landlord. Ever wish you knew more about your new landlord before signing the lease? Hopefully Gloria Trembicky won't have any more unsuspecting tenants. This well-documented story of disrepair, deceit and disorder should keep any landlord-Googler away (especially with the growing contributions emailed from former tenants). Also, it provides some great Schadenfreude for those of us not renting in NYC.
